The launch of a new sister brand for Modular Driven Technologies (MDT) has just been announced. MambaMag is intended to provide shooters with quality aftermarket magazines for factory rifles that increase their overall magazine capacity. This supposedly allows you to field higher round capacities on a traditional rifle without any need for drastic modifications to the platform. Their starting lineup should include magazine extension offerings for TIkka, Howa, Remington, and Lithgow rifles.

MDT Announces the Launch of Sister Company MAMBAMAG
MambaMag is the rebirth of the Lucky Thirteen brand of aftermarket rifle magazines. They’re a 10rd box magazine that fits straight into most factory rifles. Our bottom metal for Remington 700 and Howa 1500 convert your factory stock to be able to use these new magazines. They work great for hunting, plinking or shooting precision rifle matches.
The new lineup will make use of one or two components depending on the rifle you are wanting to field. The core component is obviously the new magazines from MambaMag. These straight-fit magazines feature a machined 6061-T6 Aluminum upper section which will allow for durable and reliable attachment and feeding, meanwhile the polymer lower section will keep the magazines light and according to MambaMags, “give a warmer feel for magazine removal and handling.” Each magazine will feature a removable bottom cover plate which will allow you access to the internals for maintenance and cleaning purposes. Each magazine features a 10-round capacity, is priced at $119.95 regardless of platform and will come in either .223 or .308 configurations.
The second component, called the MambaMag Bottom Metal is a simple conversion for your factory stock which will allow it to be used with a MambaMag detachable box magazine. The bottom metal will be made from 6061-T6 Aluminum and will feature a steel mag latch. The bottom metal piece will also feature a front magazine catch as well as a rear one to allow the magazines to drop free while still offering the most reliable feeding. At the time of writing, the MambaMag Bottom Metal is currently only available for Remington 700 short action rifles as well as Howa 1500 short actions. Pricing on the bottom metal components regardless of platform starts at $179.95 and comes with all the hardware needed to make the conversion.

For me, it seems like this might be a more affordable way to turn your factory bolt gun into a more competition-friendly gun without making major modifications or shelling out thousands upon thousands of dollars for a dedicated precision rifle platform.
